Beyond Belief is a daily reflection book for nonbelievers, freethinkers and everyone. Addicts, alcoholics and codependents buy 800,000 daily devotional books each year. These daily inspirations have been part of 12 Step Life as long as the slogan, 'one day at a time.' Over the decades, specialty books have been added to the offerings for youth, newcomers, trauma victims, men and women and for the families of process and substance addicts. Beyond Belief is the first secular daily reflection book that invites humanists, atheists, agnostics and those of unconventional spiritual beliefs into the conversation.
Beyond Belief contains 365 quotes and musings about addiction and recovery with thoughts for the day from Bill Wilson to Claudia Black, Mother Teresa to Sam Harris, Soren Kierkegaard to Grace Slick, George Carlin to Elizabeth Kubler-Ross and from Dr. Joyce Brothers to Dr. Seuss. The second printing now features a Foreword by Ernest Kurtz, PhD, author of The Spirituality of Imperfection, Experiencing Spirituality and Not God: A History of Alcoholics Anonymous. There are 120 index items for topics such as relapse prevention, meditation, personal inventories and living in the service of others. The age-old tenets of the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions come alive in a 21st century context - now with more bite and less dogma.Review -
